|To recreate a slk screen effect with Photoshop.|
One of the things Andy Warhol was known for was creating silkscreens based on photographs of celebrities and everyday objects. Check out some of his stuff here. Take some pictures
of subjects that you think might work well for this assignment. The
difficult part is finding an image that has enough detail left to color
convert it with the threshold adjustment. Go to IMAGE>ADJUSTMENTS>THRESHOLD.
Drag slider to taste (how you think it looks best). Now your picture
is just black and white, no grays. Try a few different pictures.
You can also do this conversion in sections. Select an area with the
selection tool, do the threshold adjustment, select another area, do
adjustment, etc. until is is all converted. I'll show you how to do
this in class, it is easier than it sounds.
After you have created one file, duplicate that three times. With the three additional files, highlight each color layer and go to IMAGE>ADJUSTMENTS>HUE/SATURATION to change the color. The object is to create an image like the one above. I'll show you how to combine the four images in class.
Note: this can be a new image or an old image taken this semester.
|Save the psd in your assignment folder on your desktop. Also safe a jpg to put on your website.|
